I'm about to upgrade the server... Confused
Should be no more than a couple of mins downtime, but could be more if I have to back it out. I'll keep this topic updated with info...

OK - upgraded, things seem to be working normally.
Please post in User Feedback if you notice anything odd or broken.

Later tonight (Thursday, 17th March) there'll be a short period of downtime as I update the BB software. Try again in 10 min if you get a message saying it's down.

I'm going to close the board down to do a site backup and then upgrade in the next half hour (4:15pm June 29th 2005). Should be back up fairly quickly - so go and make yourself a cup of tea or something... Wink

We're back - looks like it all went OK. Report issues in Feedback forum...

It's Sunday night and fairly quiet, so in the next 10 min I'm going to close access to the board down while I do an upgrade - it shouldn't take long so check back in half an hour if you're keen.

Back up and all looks well. Please report any problems in the User Feedback forum.

At about 10am (Monday May 1st) I'm going to bring the board down briefly for a bug fix upgrade - shouldn't take long.

OK, it looks like I'm ready ...
Sometime this afternoon I'm going to disable this board, copy all content to the new server, bring everything up on the new server, and finally update the DNS to the new IP. Dependent on various things the board should appear to be down for not much more than a hour - it will actually be down for less but the TTL on the DNS is set to 1 hour.

See you on the other side Razz

Looks like we're all moved and updated. I'll create a topic in User Feedback to discuss any anomalies - I'm sure there'll be some as everything changed in this move, although I didn't introduce any new board features - I thought that might be pushing my luck Wink
